It worked!

My suspicions came to fruition today! Since I was too busy reading Twilight (ridiculous!) I made the Kirkland frozen lasagna for dinner tonight. I didn't feel like making a salad, so I just slathered some orange puree (since I still haven't made any other purees) under a noodle on the ricatta cheese and it worked! It also helped to cool down the lasagna. The texture wasn't much different, since it's a casserole of sorts, but the taste was a little sweeter, like a sweet meat sauce. I think it'll be better with the green puree. My friend, Natalie, made the chicken nuggets tonight and said she could eat them every night. I'm definitely not up for that much work since just frying or baking them would take more time than I'm willing to spend on a meal! For now I'll stick to my carrot ketsup and spinach BBQ sauce for dipping our store-bought nuggets. I'll let you know how those go!

I can vouch for the puree in pancakes, those were great, Anne! I'm really going to have to try this.
